Mooresville, NC 7/12/14 – It took the sixth race of the 2014 season for the same driver to win twice in the X-1R Pro Cup Series, but finally Friday night in front of a healthy crowd at Tri-County Motor Speedway JP Morgan notched win number two of the year. Morgan cruised to the victory over a late surging Reid Wilson and series newcomer Brian Keselowski, who crossed the stripe in third position, to complete in the podium.
It was the veteran Morgan’s second career win at the Hudson, North Carolina track having won in the series last visit to the 4/10th mile facility back in 2012.
“I don’t know what it is about this place but I enjoy racing here (Tri-County), it’s a shame this place isn’t open on a regular basis. A big shout out to all the fans who did come out tonight and support this track and this series. We had a good racecar right when we unloaded and then during practice my guys went to work and made it even better,” explained Morgan in Edelbrock Victory Lane. “We had pressure from Gus Dean early on, and we even made some contact several times racing hard for the lead. But when it got time to start racing for the win I was able to pull away. That’s how good my car was tonight.”
